April In Paris Rose

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

The rose bush isn't very big, but I love the soft pink color of April in Paris.  I've never been to Paris, but people tell me it is as beautiful in Spring as this rose.  The nice thing about the rose is that we can enjoy it longer than just Spring.

Byłam w Paryżu wiosną i jest pięknie, ale Twoja róża jest równie śliczna. Pozdrawiam.
I was in Paris in the spring and it is beautiful, but your rose is also lovely. Yours.

It's so pretty, George. Each time I hear "Paris" I remember my nephew going there on business (he was the candy buyer for Target at the time) and he did NOT bring me chocolates!!! I'll never get over that!!!!!

You have the most fabulous roses in your garden. My neighbour grows lovely roses too. She gave me a bunch a few days ago and they smell beautiful and each day they open a bit more and get lovelier. When I look at them I think of you and Betsy and how good it must be to be surrounded by roses.
